Faith In Action – Navigating The World

During my time driving my taxi, if I hadn’t become accustomed to what the  world’s way is like, I think I would have become completely discouraged. The crudity, the frivolity and the emptiness of it.

The ways of the world are not Christian. We should not be trying to impose our ways on the world. We should be showing the people of the world a better way. We should be with the help of Our Lord and our friend leading a better life which will witness to them.

Our standards are higher than the world’s standards and with Our Ever Present Lord and Our Friend we are never alone. What do the people of the world have, nothing that compares with what a believer has in Christ Jesus.

People should be inquiring of us, what is different about us, that is our chance to share about Our Lord and Our Friend.

We change the world not by imposing our beliefs on them, but by living our beliefs, they will want to live them too. We must be prepared to die to self and live in and through Our Lord and Our Friend Christ Jesus.

We had an advertisement here, which went like this; “I will have what she is having.” Lets be fair dinkum {true to our conviction} so people will want the life we are having, which will one by one transform the world.

John 7 verse 38 “The one who believes in Me{Jesus}, as the scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him {Them}.

2 Corinthians 10 verses 3 to 5   {Message Bible} The world is unprincipled. It’s dog-eat-dog out there! the world doesn’t fight fair. But we don’t live or fight our battles that way – never have and never will. The tools of our trade aren’t for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose though and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ.

We have a lot going for us, let us all live a life worthy of His Calling. One by one we will change the world together for Our Lord and Our Friend.

God Bless.
